Venus In Gemini
Your ruling planet Venus is on the move this month as it enters your fellow air sign Gemini on the 3rd. This is an intriguing transit of Venus for you as Gemini rules your travel sector. Venus remains here until August 7th, an unusually long time to spend in one sign. This is because Venus is to-ing and fro-ing in Gemini and will turn retrograde next month, i.e. will be on go slow.
So, travel plans are going to be chopping and changing! Obviously, as few of us going anywhere, it would be a rare move for you to be actually on the move during our global situation. Yet, you may still be making decisions about cancelling a holiday or trip or working out what to do for the best.
Also, Gemini doesn’t only rule travel but study, learning, knowledge and any activity that broadens your horizons. Being one of the air signs, you have a lively mind. You may be one of the people who responds well to our current crisis and thrives online. The 4th is a great date to commit to a course of study or spend an hour each day enhancing your life through a hobby, skill or talent.
Mars & Saturn
Aquarius rules skills and talents in your horoscope as this is your creative sector. And, there’s key activity here throughout April as Mars, the action planet, is here.
Yet, as the month begins, Saturn is also in Aquarius and there could be frustration early on if you feel held back or restricted. Aquarius rules children and romance in your horoscope, so it may be these areas of your life that are bringing extra challenge your way.
If this is true for you and you’re full on with home schooling, for example, know that any difficulties will start to ease from the 11th onwards as Mars pulls away from Saturn.
It is definitely a great month to use your time well and not allow yourself to get overly distracted. Having a schedule that works for you and brings you a certain amount of regularity and routine will help.
Love & Partnership
Love is definitely intriguing as the Sun remains in your opposite star sign, Aries, until the 19th. Therefore, the cosmic spotlight is on your close relationships, both personal and professional. This is about partnership in your life, an important element for you. You need people around to keep you company, bounce ideas off and with whom you can share your love.
If you are currently on your own or without a partner, this will be a period of great learning in your life, although not always easy. The most important date for love and relationships is the 8th when the Full Moon falls in your star sign Libra.
Full Moons heighten emotions and this Full Moon is about the balance of power when it comes to love. You may want to reach out to someone in your life. Or, you find yourself needing reassurance. Give and receive equally is the motto of this month’s Full Moon.
Talk planet, Mercury, also moves through Aries from the 11th to the 27th so keep the lines of communication open, whether you’re living alongside other people or not. The weekend of the 18th/19th feels especially lively for relationships – perhaps you’re taking part in an online event or creating a house party with people important to you.
Jupiter Pluto Conjunction
It does feel as if this is going to be a significant month for close relationships because of the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This is a major planetary aspect that takes place this month on the 5th, also on June 30th and November 12th. It’s a backdrop to your year and Capricorn rules your home and family, your past and where you come from.
There may be big changes taking place at home or within your family. It could feel full on trying to keep everyone safe and well. You may find new ways to look after others or expand where you live. It’s a good month to be doing so, as long as you pay close attention to current guidelines.
It would be easy to extend the chain of connections one link too far this month, especially if you’re trying to keep your partner’s family happy as well as your own, for example. Know where you need to stop and don’t fall into the Libra trap of trying to please others.
You may be on a trip down memory lane and pulled back into the past more than usual. Money may be linked to what’s happening at home or with regard to your past and this is another key feature of April’s astrology.
This is because of the emphasis on the star sign, Taurus, ruling money. This is your joint finance sector. Uranus has been here for some time, the planet of unpredictability, wins and losses. Uranus clashes with Mars on the 7th, not a good date for taking a risk or falling out with someone close over money.
Later in the month, there’s more action here as the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th followed by Mercury on the 27th. The key date is the 23rd when there’s a New Moon in your joint finance sector.
This falls next to Uranus – key dates being the 26th and 31st (May 1st in some countries). Expect sudden changes around money, whether a windfall or unexpected expenses. Uranus can go either way.
This is a good time to review your finances and look at new and innovative ways of taking care of your money. Use online resources and stay one step ahead. Find out what’s happening in all areas regarding money and come up with new and creative suggestions to help yourself and other people.
Although, on the 14th/15th and 25th/26th be wary about who’s holding the financial reins and ensure that you’re working alongside one another as a team. This is especially true with regard to your family and/or people you live with.
